Default ID'ing department with paint ID codes on door tag

If you're trying to ID the original department of an SSP, and the buck tag is missing, here is a list I have come up with after databasing door tags and buck tags. This list is for 1989 - 1993 only, as that is where the majority of "special" paint color codes were used on the door tag and buck tag. I have only seen one before '89 (an '85 CHP).
